It’s hard to decide what makes a good game but what makes a game that is still great 10+ years after it’s release? Let’s dive into games that have stood the test of time and look at what makes these great titles so unique.
In my opinion a lot of Bullfrog's classics like Theme Park World, Dungeon Keeper and,in particular, the brilliant Theme Hospital are still great fun today.
Loved this! Age of empires III in particular still holds today. Theme hospital and RCT. Great list :)
I used to love playing Roller-coaster Tycoon! Pokemon will never die, I will playing that in my 80's without a doubt. Great list.
So many games to have chosen from, too many classics to name! I wonder if we'll look back on modern games in the future with the same nostalgic love?
Baldur's Gate was a classic. That takes me back. There's so many in this list that make me weep from nostalgia :')
Completely agree with Age of Empires, especially with the HD remaster a couple of years ago.
Nice list with some good points. Always interesting to consider how some of the older franchises would fare if they came out now. Today's gaming would probably look pretty different if Mario, Zelda and Pokemon hadn't come out when they did.
I completely agree with Age of Empires too but you've missed a trick... what about Theme Hospital?!
5 games that pass the test of time: Tetris Chrono trigger Punch out Robotron 2084 Supper Mario Bros 3
Still play Baldur's Gate from time to time with old buddies, definitely one of the best old school RPGs
